Tyler Provides Data Sharing Platform in New Mexico
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 | Comments

The New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) and its Judicial Information Division launched a statewide data project with Tyler Technologies to improve the criminal justice system and enhance public safety.

New Mexico’s data-sharing platform, powered by Tyler’s Socrata Connected Government Cloud, gives law enforcement, prosecutors, public defenders, jails and other governmental agencies the ability to share data.

The platform supports the state’s 13 Criminal Justice Coordinating Councils, 33 counties, all law enforcement and corrections agencies, the New Mexico Sentencing Commission, courts, public defenders, district attorneys, behavioral health agencies, probation compliance programs and agencies involved in adult, family and child welfare. Users now have a central platform for accessing, sharing and analyzing data that they have collected and stored in their own networks.

“New Mexico is undergoing a statewide justice reform effort focused on enabling criminal justice agencies to share and use data more effectively,” said Zach Grant, data integration program manager for the New Mexico Sentencing Commission. “This project represents a huge step in the right direction and should help justice partners reduce costs, improve service, inform policy decisions and ultimately improve safety.”

The Sentencing Commission is funding the first-year pilot of the data-sharing program through a crime reduction grant made possible under newly enacted legislation, House Bill 267. State leaders are taking an evidence-based approach to governing with the new law, which aims to formalize data-sharing agreements in a streamlined and efficient way. Even more, the law is intended to provide a foundation for advanced analysis and data visualizations. New Mexico will use the data made available through the platform to help guide decisions on its criminal justice system.

The state’s platform offers built-in analytics and will support New Mexico’s efforts to promote open data. It will serve as a secure and centralized data repository for New Mexico’s criminal justice partners.
